The rise of ransomware

Organizations need new mitigation strategies to protect themselves from this growing cyber threat



Modernize and innovate with Google Cloud Platform Security

While on the surface, ransomware may seem like a simple attack, it actually involves complex and diverse strategies that hinder recovery.

More specifically, ransomware attacks involve the use of an executable to encrypt an organization’s sensitive files, after which the files are held hostage until a ransom is paid. If the target of the attack refuses to pay the ransom, then attackers often threaten to delete the data or release it to the public.

Cyberattackers use different network penetration strategies to gain access to data, and no matter how they gain access, ransomware attacks often result in heavy loss and irreparable damage to an organization’s reputation.

Building and implementing a solution that offers ransomware protection and data recovery is imperative for every organization. Businesses are using and storing more data than ever and the need to protect the data is growing every day. Further, as more and more data are stored, it is much more efficient to implement an automated process to provide protection.

Utilizing Google Cloud tools, KPMG can help clients build a roadmap to advancing their data security workstream. In addition, ShardSecure is integrated into the KPMG cyber offering, providing an additional layer of security and the means of recovering missing data. With the combination of Google Cloud and ShardSecure, KPMG helps enable corporations and institutions to build a robust data security architecture while providing advanced controls and processes to attain the desired security level.
